"I wish I read the reviews prior to transferring. I had transferred from a ground campus down the street from me which I realized while I was at this online school that I took it for granted. The instructors are poor and help you with absolutely nothing. The course material is poor and it is pretty pathetic how they call those short descriptions a "lesson". I was there for media arts and animation and for my drawing classes I took, I will not say I didn't pick up a thing or two from the courses, but for the life drawing and gesture course I am glad I had did a in depth study of human anatomy prior to attending this college because the material they provided to teach was pretty sorry and pathetic. I would highly suggest anyone avoid this place. From what I know there was no money scam ordeal for me as I seen others had those issues. I was only there for two 5.5 week courses. I had just withdrawn. I have to get in contact with my money provider to see where I stand, I hope everything is as it should be. I really despised everything about this place. The instructors were poor at their "job" and all the women sided with each other and made excuses for each others inadequate behaviors. There were no men employees, not many and if there were then they were submissive to the women employees. That's what I gathered as they were "assistance" of women and I never been sexist before, but this was horrible as no one was doing their jobs correctly. In retrospect it all seemed like a childish game system they were operating. It seemed rather fake."

"I have studied at many different schools while obtaining my degree and the Art Institute has been one of the best that I have attended. Beyond just the convenience of being able to do my classwork on my terms around work and not having to deal with the hassle of going to a campus, I had academic advisers who works hard to help me achieve my goals and help me when things weren't going as they were suppose to. I had a financial adviser who helped me understand every bill I received and helped me get financial help so that I could obtain my degree. For the most part my professors were knowledgeable and helpful. A couple felt like a waste of time but that happens at every school. My education was tailored to what I wanted to do and what I was good at. I have an eye disorder that means I have no depth perception, which means I'm not good at drawing realistic things because I don't see the world they way the majority of the population does. This being said my adviser saw that I was excelling at 3D modeling so my classes focused more in that area then in the drawing aspect of animation, though I was still taught the basics so that I had them. At AIP I was treated like I mattered. My adviser called me after every session to see how things were going. The school was understanding of power outages based on weather or unforeseen events. They also worked very hard to encourage the students to do well both through awards and financial incentives such as a grant that was based on good grades. My experience there was excellent!"
